MDC Offers Camping 101

If you have never been camping, but would like to give it a try, the Missouri Department of Conservation is offering a Camping 101 course in the Kansas City area.  If you are new to camping, just determining what gear to load in the car and where to camp can seem daunting, especially for families.

This Camping 101 program is meant to help anyone learn the basic gear and tips that can make camping successful and fun for all ages. The program is Wednesday, June 16th, at the MDC’s Parma Woods Shooting Range near Parkville and is from 6 to 8 p.m.

You will learn about the different types of camping, from basic tent camping to campers.  There will be information about the types of sites, facilities, and amenities that may be available.

MDC staff will discuss what gear is needed and tips for activities and staying comfortable while camping.

The Camping 101 workshop is open to all ages. Children should be accompanied by adults. Registration is required. To register, visit
